Microplane: The Graters of Choice

Microplane’s story begins in Canada in 1994. A housewife was frustrated that her kitchen graters were not up to the task of zesting an orange – instead of neatly removing the zest they would tear, catch and stick.

In a flash of inspiration, she took a woodworking tool from her husband’s workshop. The super-sharp blades effortlessly shaved the orange zest, and the idea for Microplane was born. Microplanes are now the graters of choice for professional chefs and home cooks all over the world.
